Woke Preacher Clips: White people beginning to realize whiteness itself is killing them

Powered by Topple

Ibram X. Kendi, author of the book “Antiracist Baby,” said in a commentary that he gave at a Manhattan church that anti-racists reject bigoted “savior theology” and instead embrace “liberation theology.”

His book and premise are being used to foist social justice and liberation theology on children and adults alike in the United States. It has now gone mainstream in America. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey gave $10 million to Kendi’s Center for Antiracist Research.

Kendi claims the following in connection to “liberation theology” and Christians: “The job of the Christian is to liberate society from the powers on earth that are oppressing humanity.” He views the goal of “savior theology” as being the mission “to go out and save these individuals who are behaviorally deficient. In other words, we are to bring them into the church, these individuals who are doing all these evil, sinful things, and heal them. And save them. And once we’ve saved them, we’ve done our job.” In other words, ostensibly Christianity is not about divine forgiveness for the individual, but about race, social justice, and the collective mindset.

Kendi says being white is actually a threat to all of humanity: “More white people are finally beginning to realize how white supremacy and how even whiteness itself is killing them…It literally is posing an existential threat to humanity. It always has. And so fundamentally, antiracism is life. It literally is, it can save humanity.”

The author claims that “savior theology … goes right in line with racist ideals and racist theology.” He goes on to add: “That type of theology breeds bigotry.”

He seems to be drawing a line in the sand and stating that you can either fight injustice or save souls but not both. Especially if you are white. Most Christians arguably believe the opposite – that they can do both and that God is colorblind. Kendi seemingly believes that if you are white, by definition you are racist.

The divisive rhetoric empowered by liberation theology is part and parcel of critical race theory. And Kendi is expanding his message across America.

The Boston Globe editorial team and “How to be an Antiracist” author Kendi are joining together to create a media outlet that will be dedicated to reframing the national narrative on race.

The Emancipator” was envisioned by Kendi and editorial page editor Bina Venkataraman. They came together after the death of George Floyd and in the wake of the riots that followed to have a discussion on race. Last week they announced their project.

The publication will follow in the footsteps of historic abolitionist newspapers that were created in the 19th century in Boston. The goal is to “amplify critical voices, ideas, debates, and evidence-based opinion in an effort to hasten racial justice.”

The endeavor will encompass both scholastic and journalistic work that will “feature op-ed contributions from world-leading experts and community voices captured by student journalists.”

“When The Emancipator was first founded in 1820, it was very difficult for people to believe that slavery, 45 years later, would be no more, just as I think there are many people today who can’t imagine that there could be a nation without racism and inequality,” Kendi stated. “This reimagined platform will marry the best of scholarship and journalism to analyze, comment, and seek truth about the racial problems of our time.”

Kendi’s publication is set to launch this summer. It is supported by Boston University and the Boston Globe. The social justice venture has also been awarded a hefty seven-figure budget.

The project will be overseen by an advisory board that will be comprised of prominent progressive writers and pundits. The leadership will include “1619 Project” maven Nikole Hannah-Jones, as well as MSNBC political analyst Joy Reid.

Kendi has ventured into religion, schools, and the media to force his liberation theology message into the headlines and progressives can’t get enough of his race-based preaching.
